Although trunks have been around for thousands of years in China and elsewhere, the most common styles seen and referred to today date from the late 18th century to the early 20th century, when they were supplanted in the market by the cheaper and lighter suitcase.Trunks were generally constructed with a base trunk box made of pine which was then covered with protective and decorative materials.Some glass hardware already existed, notably cabinet knobs, but nothing in the way of door knobs.These knobs feature a very wide base with steps up to the glass.With cast iron or black antique hardware I suggest a dab of black paint on the screw heads for a more pleasing appearance. Brass & bronze are soft metals that are easily scratched and cast iron has no flex and will snap just like a piece of glass.That's where all the broken cast iron hinges come from! Stand on the side of the door where you can see the barrel of the hinges.After you've gone to all that effort of choosing the perfect old hardware please don't ruin it by using phillips head screws!To be historically correct a slotted screw is necessary.
Trunks are differentiated from chests by their more rugged construction due to their intended use as luggage, instead of the latter's pure storage.
If the hinges are on the left you have a right hand door (you would pull it open with your right hand), if the hinges are on the right you have a left hand door (you would pull it open with your left hand).
Almost all the locks sold here are reversible by simply removing the lock body cover and turning the strike over.
